Description

Vaccinium ovatum is a small to medium-sized evergreen shrub up to 4m tall. The leaves are egg-shaped, leathery, sharp-toothed, and are dark shiny green on the top and paler below. The leaves grow between two and five centimetres long, are distinctly 2-ranked and horizontally disposed. The flowers are white to pink, bell-shaped, and grow up to 8mm long in clusters of three to ten in the axils of leaves. The berries are small (4-7mm wide), round, purplish-black, and shiny. It is commonly found in coniferous forests at low elevations, or on beach fringe close to tidewater. It is distinguishable from similar species, such as Vaccinium alaskaense which has oval to egg-shaped, deciduous leaves and 7-10mm wide berries, and Vaccinium membranaceum which has deciduous, thin, lance-shaped elliptic leaves and purplish or reddish-black, 6-8mm wide berries.

Description

The coastal strawberry is never far from the sea, hence the name. Its terminal tooth on the leaves are shorter than the neighbouring teeth compared to the woodland strawberry (Fragaria vesca), which has the terminal tooth longer than its neighbours. To contrast with the wild strawberry (Fragaria virginiana) which also has its terminal tooth shorter than its neighbours, the F. virginiana often has a bluish-green tone to the topside of its leaves.
